What does "past exposure to herpes" mean? I got some blood testing done as I have been battling issues with a hormone imbalance. I had decided to get additional tests done although i'd gotten it done not long before. I called the office to discuss results

Past. Past exposure to herpes, means the person has herpes. You either have type one or type 2. In the usa about one in 5 people have herpes antibodies. Among sexually active new yorkers it is like 90%. You are in the herpes hotbed of america. You need to find out if it is herpes one or two. Two can be nasty and angry. One is common and benign.
